Supreme Court approves Obamacare subsidies on HealthCare.gov

Obamacare just survived a potentially fatal heart attack.

In a major decision, the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday ruled in a 6-3 decision that the federal subsidies that help nearly 6.4 million people pay for their Obamacare health plans are legal under the Affordable Care Act.

The ruling avoids what many analysts predicted would be a nightmare scenario if the plaintiffs had won: individual plan insurance prices skyrocketing in two-thirds of the United States, and the loss of health coverage for upwards of 8 million people in states served by the federal insurance marketplace HealthCare.gov by next year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The plan prices are already skyrocketing. All the argument is about is over who gets stuck with the bill!

EPA Knew EMFs Were a “Probable Human Carcinogen” Decades Ago and Covered It Up

Did you know that back in 1990, the Environmental Protection Agency was all set to release a report that admitted electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are dangerous to our health, including that EMFs have been linked with “the development of various cancers” but stopped short of straight up admitting they are “probable carcinogens”?

It's only because of a whistleblower at the EPA that the draft report with the original information was ever released...

Grocery Lobby Sends B.S. Letter to Vermont Governor Whining GMO Labels Will Cost $10M a Day

Apparently we can have labels on our food. In fact, we already do. A great variety of them, in fact.

Apparently those labels can have lots and lots of words on them. Words like “quality” and “all natural” which don’t really mean anything in a legal sense as defined by the Food and Drug Administration. Apparently those words can be comprised of the 26 letters of our standard English alphabet. Apparently those letters can include “G,” “M,” and even “O”.

However, according to the giant lobbying group Grocery Manufacturer Association, for some reason it’ll cost a whopping $10 million dollars a day in fines if those letters are put together on a label in that order to alert customers to the fact that they might be buying and eating a genetically modified organism.

Same corporations that manufacture vaccines are killing half a million people annually with deadly psychiatric drugs

Psychiatric medications are not only useless, but they're responsible for killing at least 500,000 people aged 65 years and older every single year. This is the shocking conclusion of a new meta-analysis published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) that challenges the widely held belief that antidepressants and dementia drugs are safe and effective for treating mental health issues.

Why is NASA working on a way to destroy asteroids using nuclear weapons?

NASA and the National Nuclear Security Administration are teaming up to try to figure out a way to use nuclear weapons to either destroy threatening asteroids or to at least nudge them off course. This seems very odd considering the fact that just a couple of weeks ago NASA publicly announced that it knew of “no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth” and that “no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years“.

These 7 fast food restaurants are getting rid of artificial ingredients

On Tuesday, Bloomberg reported that Papa John's is cutting artificial ingredients and other additives from the menu.

The company plans to eliminate 14 ingredients such as corn syrup, preservatives and artificial colors by the end of 2016, an effort that will cost about $100 million a year.

In a world where a food blogger can unleash a health-conscious army on any restaurant chain using an artificial ingredient with a complicated name, more and more companies are trying to simplify their ingredients list.

Processed Food Losing Market Share to Fresh and Organic Alternatives

Major packaged-food companies lost $4 billion in market share alone last year, as shoppers swerved to fresh and organic alternatives. Can the supermarket giants win you back?

Try this simple test. Say the following out loud: Artificial colors and flavors. Pesticides. Preservatives. High-fructose corn syrup. Growth hormones. Antibiotics. Gluten. Genetically modified organisms.

If any one of these terms raised a hair on the back of your neck, left a sour taste in your mouth, or made your lips purse with disdain, you are part of Big Food’s multibillion-dollar problem. In fact, you may even belong to a growing consumer class that has some of the world’s biggest and best-known companies scrambling to change their businesses.

Samsung's 'see-through' trucks aim to reduce risk of passing on highway

Navigating busy two-lane highways can mean drivers often can't see the road for the cars and take a risk that can prove fatal when they attempt to overtake large vehicles like transport trucks.

The Korean technology giant Samsung wants to reduce that risk with the help of technology that allows drivers to virtually see "through" the vehicles ahead of them. Using monitors mounted on the back of a truck or other large vehicle and connected wirelessly to a camera in front, Samsung's Safety Truck technology shows drivers what's ahead of the 18-wheeled obstruction they're driving behind — day or night.

Nasa's Dawn Probe Takes More Photos of Mysterious Bright Spots on Ceres

New images of Ceres from Nasa's Dawn spacecraft has provided more visible images of mysterious bright spots and also revealed a pyramid-shaped peak towering over a relatively flat landscape.

Dawn has been studying the dwarf planet Ceres, the largest object in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, in detail from its second mapping orbit, which is 4,400 km above Ceres.

A new view of its intriguing bright spots, located in a crater 90km across, shows even more small spots in the crater than were previously visible, the US space agency said.

At least eight spots can be seen next to the largest bright area, which scientists think is approximately nine kilometres wide.

Truth About Scientifically Supported Vaccine-Autism-Inflammatory Bowel Disease Connection


At the event, Dr. Wakefield cleared up some major misconceptions about his famous paper, including the lie that it declared all vaccines to cause autism. He had this to say concerning the structure and intent of his greatly misunderstood research:

“No one has read this paper. No one actually knows what it says. This is a case series. This is the way human disease syndromes are described, whether it’s Asperger’s syndrome or Crohn’s disease or multiple sclerosis — a handful of patients that present with a similar pattern of signs and symptoms that merit investigation and reporting in their own right.”

Flashback: How Beijing used rockets to keep opening ceremony dry

China's cunning multimillion-pound plan to manipulate the Olympic weather seems to be yielding results. While rain drenched the capital yesterday, the downpour that should have fallen on Friday night was averted; Olympic organisers fired a barrage of 1,110 rockets into the evening sky to make sure the 2008 Olympic opening ceremony was precipitation-free.

It has become a tradition in Beijing to seed the clouds before public holidays, such as National Day on 1 October, to make rain, disperse pollution and ensure clear skies on the day. But for the opening ceremony, the purpose was simply rain dispersal – bringing on a downpour but not on the Olympic stadium.

The 1 Percent’s Vile New War

Rich people rarely tell you how they really feel about poor people. Occasionally, though, you get a glimpse. Earlier this week, the Washington Post published a story about Rancho Santa Fe, a small but extremely wealthy enclave in Southern California. Like the rest of California, the people of Rancho Santa Fe are dealing with a drought.
As you might imagine, that means water is scarce and conservation is critical. For the denizens of Rancho Santa Fe, however, conservation is someone else’s problem, namely poor people.

According to Steve Yuhas, who lives in the area and hosts a conservative talk-radio show, privileged people “should not be forced to live on property with brown lawns, golf on brown courses or apologize for wanting their gardens to be beautiful.” Oh, the humanity! In case it wasn’t clear, Yuhas added that the right to water ought to scale with income: “No, we’re not all equal when it comes to water.”

KFC Runs DNA Test on Alleged ‘Deep Fried Rat’ – Guess What They Found

Last week the Internet recoiled in horror when a man in California posted a video of what appeared to be a deep-fried rat that had been served to him at a local KFC. However, it seems that KFC got hold of this alleged rodent and ran some DNA tests on it and found that it really was just a piece of chicken that happened to be oddly rat-shaped.

NEW JAMA STUDY CONFIRMS NURSE WHISTLEBLOWING: ROUTINE HOSPITAL VACCINE DAMAGE HAPPENING TO INFANTS

It was not long ago that headlines were made by Michelle Rowton of Nurses Against Mandatory Vaccines during a live interview with David Knight of infowars.com. The nurse turned whistleblower spoke of the callous, daily operating procedure she witnessed happening in the hospital she worked at. Her admissions were yet another log on a fire lit long ago burning for people’s right to have medical freedom and choice. In that viral interview, Rowton went on record to state:

“I think what a lot of people don’t realize in a closed space like NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) is that they’ve decided that we need to vaccinate these babies on-time. Two months after they’re born…bam, there it goes. This baby could be four months early and still supposed to be inside their mother, weighting three or four pounds and getting the same amount of vaccines as a 200 pound man.”

Rowton then went further to break bombshell news at the time by saying:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

If any one of our readers knows someone who might be delivering a baby early, please be sure to share this with them, so that there is some statement in the file that indicates if the hospital vaccinates a baby in the NICU in a way that threatens its life, the doctor who has given the order, and the hospital, will be sued out of existence by the parents of that infant.

Drug Company Chief: Our Drugs Do Not Work on Most Patients

A senior executive with Britain's biggest drugs company has admitted that most prescription medicines do not work on most people who take them.

Allen Roses, worldwide vice-president of genetics at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), said fewer than half of the patients prescribed some of the most expensive drugs actually derived any benefit from them.

It is an open secret within the drugs industry that most of its products are ineffective in most patients but this is the first time that such a senior drugs boss has gone public. His comments come days after it emerged that the NHS drugs bill has soared by nearly 50 per cent in three years, rising by £2.3bn a year to an annual cost to the taxpayer of £7.2bn. GSK announced last week that it had 20 or more new drugs under development that could each earn the company up to $1bn (£600m) a year.

?Sanctions create favorable conditions for Russian industry – trade minister

The sanctions have multiple advantages for Russia, as they motivate companies to turn to domestically produced goods and boost the economy, Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov told RT.

“I don’t want to sound cynical, but since I’m in charge of the real sector of the economy, in charge of the Russian industry, I can say we’ve actually benefited in more ways than one from sanctions imposed last year,” said Manturov at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum (SPIEF), adding that before the sanctions were put into effect Russian companies paid less attention to domestic products.

"...now sanctions provided them [companies and consumers - Ed.] with additional motivation, and they are turning to Russian companies. This generates demand for the Russian industry. So, to me, this was an advantage, in a sense," he added.

American Medical Association Supports the Elimination of Parents’ Right to Make Vaccine Choices, and California Takes Another Step Toward Medical Tyranny

In 2012, then California Assemblyman Dr. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento)1 assured Californians that a bill he sponsored (AB2107) to increase child vaccination rates in the state would not remove parental rights to make vaccine choices for their children.

Now a state Senator, he's singing a different tune. This year he worked with attorney Senator Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica) to fast track a bill (SB277) through the state legislature

The bill would make it virtually impossible for California children to attend daycare or get a school education without receiving more than 40 doses of 10 federally recommended vaccines or filing a medical vaccine exemption granted by a medical doctor.

Gaza's amazing dinosaur attraction takes you back millions of years

J G Ballard needed environmental change to bring the dinosaurs back to life in his 1962 novel The Drowned World. At Gaza's DinoZoo, though, Palestinian engineers, with German support, have used animatronic technology to do just that.

Owner Iskander Abu-Karam has spent a lot of money on the attraction, not least because of the shortage of the resources needed. "I wanted to challenge the siege on Gaza and offer something new for my guests," he explained. "DinoZoo is a very popular attraction that takes take our guests on a journey that started and ended millions of years ago."

Sperm count: Fertility in men on the decline due to everyday plastics say scientists

Men are suffering a sharp decline in fertility because of the prevalence of every-day plastics, say scientists.

And Niels Jørgensen, associate professor at Rigshospital, Copenhagen, has told the European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology's conference in Lisbon that only one in four men have "good" sperm.

According to The Times, phthalates, chemicals that are found in shower curtains, car dashboards and cleaning materials, "can be breathed in, consumed or absorbed through the skin of pregnant women, inhibiting testosterone production in male foetuses, leading to sons with low sperm counts".

Jørgensen said that society should be "very worried" by these studies, and advised women to try to avoid cosmetics.

Herbicide-Resistant Insects Are Destroying GMO Crops Like Never Before

The authors also found that not only did the rootworm thrive in Bt corn fields, but the pest had the potential to “develop resistance rapidly” when Bt crops don’t produce a high enough level of Bt toxin, and therefore would require farmers to use more pesticides to eradicate the pest.

In short, Bt corn didn’t eradicate the pest it was meant to destroy; it only made it stronger, thereby causing even more pesticide use. Sounds like a perfect biotech creation made in cahoots with companies that sell chemicals for a living – and yet we trust them to make our food?

WHY ARE WE BUILDING A RESEARCH CENTER FULL OF DEADLY DISEASES IN THE TORNADO CAPITAL OF THE WORLD?

If the foot-and-mouth virus—or any other airborne danger—escaped from the lab, the air currents would likely carry it beyond where it could cause harm. An out-of-the-way location makes sense because no lab is risk free. In 2007, for instance, the foot-and-mouth virus escaped from Great Britain’s Pirbright Institute, one of the world’s leading laboratories studying animal disease, and set off an outbreak at a nearby farm.

MONSANTO PROTECTION ACT PART 2? NEW BILL INTRODUCED SPELLS BAD NEWS FOR GMO ACTIVISTS

A couple of years ago, a bill was introduced (H.R. 933) allowing big biotech corporations, like Monsanto, to override United States federal courts on the issue of planting experimental genetically engineered crops all across the US. This rendered the government powerless when it came to stopping other biotechnology corporations from planting and harvesting. The measure shields sellers of genetically modified seeds from lawsuits, even if the resulting crops cause harm. As a result, the public labelled this bill “The Monsanto Protection Act.”

Last year it was revealed that a handful of the activist agencies behind the petition to the EPA to regulate nano-silver as a pesticide received funding from pharmaceutical giant Merck, which annually has hundreds of billions of dollars in profits from patented antibioics which many believe are less effective, less safe and far more expensive than colloidal nano-silver products.

Why Governments Promote Deadly Nuclear Energy & Ban Beneficial Hemp

Ethan Indigo Smith, Contributor

It is incredibly difficult to encapsulate lies, spin and omitted truths into a single idea that can be understood by those who are systemically compelled to ingest the results of those lies. But here goes…. Societal fraud, whether outright lies or omitted truths (which are just clever lies), requires a whole series of resolute paradigm insistence and institutional dictum. Societal fraud essentially says that 2 + 2 = 5, or that what you are seeing clearly is something else entirely. And it is done in such a way that you believe it – or are ostracized for not believing it. Societal lies are so many and so multi-faceted that the truth can be obscured (nearly) completely by specific bogus intricacies – and, as was the intention of those intricacies, most of us are lost in the fog.
